Take it in stride Samus XD. I actually like her move set with the new kicks in smash 4.

I'm so happy I found that Samus picture Gaijin used in his video! :D
Drezld Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015
I totally agree with Gajin Goomba in that video

Samus has always been sexualized....that's the ENTIRE point of her. We need more women who kicks ass in video games. If it wasn't for Samus, we wouldn't have Lara Croft or Chun-li.

Lara might have popularized women in action games, but Samus was the one who started that sexual revolution in video games.

So this is where that image from Gaijin Goomba's video came from.

wow guys

Eh, I'm no fan of the heels.

THIS version of the heels I can understand: they actually have a reason to exist, being a couple of jets who help Samus jumping higher, and are made for the Super Smash anyway, not an actual part of the Metroid series. I'd rather not have them but they're not that bad.
And aside for that detail the Zero Suit is just awesome in SSB4.

The heels that I truly can't stand are the ones in Other M, they serve no purpose aside from further reducing Samus' character into a submissive, spineless caricature of her former self.

Honestly I believe that the arguably excessive hate the SSB4's heels got were because they were saw by the fanbase as something borrowed from Other M, and therefore a confirmation of the dreadful design choices that game made with Samus. At least these heels do have a reason to exist, even through I prefer that they could keep them out of an actual Metroid game.

I'll admit I hate her initial heels that served no purpose but I don't hate these since they serve an actual purpose!

Show this to Tom Preston. He hate's Samus's heels to death. >:3
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015
His response: Deviously Denied! Sorry, you can't post a comment here because I am a complete and utter manchild!
Dr-Scaphandre Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015
Holy shit! You too? Man he just hates listening to reason doesn't he?
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015
Oh no, I wasn't blocked by him! It's just the most common way that he responds to critics with.
aaaaceace Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2016
If by critics you mean trolls. I mean for fuck's sake he has written comics where he purposely points out mistakes he has made in the past. So clearly he is listening to at least some of his critics. And yes those heels are sexist, stop trying to defend Nintendo. They put their most masculine female character into stupid looking and impractical high heels to make her more acceptable to male gamers.
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2016
They're awesome rocket heels that help with her mobility and combat prowess.

It must be a sad life if you're triggered by rocket heels.
aaaaceace Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2016
Stop, you're misogyny is showing. That is an excuse I have heard all over the internet and it is stupid. If Nintendo wanted to give Samus rocket boots, that's fine if not needed. But the rocket boots didn't need to be high heels, they could have been normal boots. Clearly Nintendo created the heels first because Samus is a woman and then added the rockets as an excuse, because lets say Captain Falcon got rocket boots you know they would not be high heels. 

Also it's not so much the heels that trigger me, but dumbasses like you that actually try and defend what is so obviously a sexist move. They gave Samus high heel shoes because they wanted to make her fit a more traditional female role that many members of their audience (aka: you) would find more desirable, nothing more. If they really wanted to do something interesting with the character make her more butch. Give her an army style hair cut, with bigger muscles, and an outfit that is a little less skin tight. But instead of going with something cool and new, they just gave her impractical high heels.     
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016
Ah, the sexist card. The signature move of a Social Justice Whiner. For your information, I love Samus because she's a complete badass wh regularly goes toe to toe with all kinds of monsters, beasties, and pirates galore. I don't fucking care if her boots are high heels, hiking boots, or soccer cleats, all I know is that they're awesome and make her more fun to play as. And they actually made her MORE practical to play as, her recovery actually works while back in Brawl I had to rely on her shitty original tethery Up B. So what if they're heels? That's right, so fucking what? All that matters is they're a blast to play with, and it's pathetic that so many people with nothing better to do with their lives are up in arms about it.

And it's funny that you're honestly expecting practicality in a fighting game where a guy confined to a 2D plane can be fought by people on a 3D plane, where Wario can eat his bike without completely ruining his digestive tract, where a duck a dog and an unseen gunman can fight on par with a goddess and the king of evil himself. and a yoga instructor can hurl the sun itself at others. It's just harmless fun, lighten the hell up, get the stick out of your ass, and deal with it.

And if anything, it speaks miles about how badass Samus is that she can fight in high heels to the point of igniting people with their rocket boosters.

Ditto and besides her being part bird means she has to walk on her toes anyway

These heels are made for Walking :XD:

why does everyone hate on the rocket heels? Its not like she wasnt already dressed in a skin tight rubber suit
MegatronMan Featured By Owner May 26, 2014
Some people are complaining that Samus' portrayal is sexist, but what is wrong with being sexy?
Samus is already sexy but giving her high heels in Wii U and bloating up her tits? Nintendo better stop that shit as its known for being the least sexually exploiting of the consoles. I blame Team Ninja & Metroid Other M for the unnecesary Samus-sexualization but hopefully they start focusing on her other attributes and badassery more in future installments.
(As for "being sexy", Marth, Ike and the other guys didn't go shirtless or wear speedos. Why did only Samus get a sexy-boost? Because she's the sexualized one.)
BlazeMan Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014
Yeah, considering that she wore more revealing clothes in the past (JUSTIN BAILEY code in the NES version, running out of energy in the SNES version, Successful speedruns in several versions, all those come to mind,) either they never played the classic installments, paid no attention to the death animation in Super (Granted, it can be a bit 'blink and you'll miss it') or just didn't go for the speedrun route.  
MegatronMan Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014
The problem is all these people who probably started gaming in 2007 or something and they set up this headcannon for Samus that contradicts the established character.

I'm so annoyed about people whining about the jet boots/heels are so tacky and she looks stupid. When it comes to Samus, it's being a hunter first, fanservice last/or whenever she feels like it/you deserve it. Besides, she can literally kick ass with these things. :)
NJM1564 Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
I hate it because the zero suit is supposed to fit under her normal power suit. But there is no way those heals could fit.
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
She looks so adorable! :3

But honestly, I think the jet boots/heels are awesome. All the people bitching about them are idiots if you ask me, I can't wait to main her again once the new games come out!
mouthofxenu Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you so much for making this image.  It just about perfectly sums up how I feel about the boots.

Seeing that this image has become something of a rallying sign for people that support the boots, I have proposed a challenge on my journal to see if we can create more art that positively depicts Samus' jet boots.…

Support equality and artistic freedom!

She's slowly turning int a Mai Otome character.

Not going to lie, I like the heels as well. A bit of extra tech for the Heroine that uses so much of it.

The yellow part annoys me. I wish it was all blue.

This design of Samus is nice! :)
WanderingChozo Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not gonna argue this. You have an opinion, and even though I think it's wrong, I will respect your opinion. I'm just not gonna play as Zero Suit Samus. You can play as her all you want. I just won't. I didn't like her in Brawl, chances are I won't like in the new Smash Bros. There really needs to be more people in the world who can accept one thing that isn't so great. The rest of the game is probably going to be amazing. So just ignore this little bit and quit whining, haters. Look at the good parts, aka everything else.

maybe this will hint a future Metroid game where she will need those.
